Our unit rolling, otherwise known as gravity conveyor rollers, offer the most economical and simplest form of transporting loads from one point to another. Minimal effort is required in the movement of goods whether it is through manual assistance or gravitational force. Our light to medium duty gravity conveyor rollers range is suitable for loads of up to 160kg. Our heavy-duty conveyor roller range is suitable for loads of up to 400kg.

Our gravity rollers have the following features:

Free Running Bearings
Wide Range of Spindle Options
Choice of Mild Steel and Stainless Steel Options
Easy to Remove & Replace
Corrosion Resistance

We can supply our gravity rollers with a variety of spindle options:

Un-machined round spindles are suitable for double spring-loaded rollers. In some cases, the side frames could be drilled as opposed to punched.

Extruded hexagonal spindles are suitable for punched conveyor side frames. The hexagonal shape prevents the spindle from rotating in the side frame. It also prevents the bearing inner race from rotating on the spindle.

Milled Flats
Round spindles with 2 milled flats are used in conveyors with slotted frames where rollers are lowered into position. In most cases the spindle is supplied fixed within the roller.

With Circlips
External circlips can be used to secure a spindle within a roller. This method of retention is usually found on heavy duty rollers and drums.

Drilled and Tapped
Both round and hexagonal spindles can be drilled and tapped at each end to enable the roller to be bolted between the conveyor side frames, thus increasing the rigidity of the conveyor.

Round spindles can be threaded at either end to suit a metric or imperial nut. In most cases the spindle is supplied loose.

Drilled Spindle End
Cross drilled spindles are supplied loose and allow several rollers to be wired together in a side frame to prevent spindle rotation and to retain the roller.
